Cast

Plot

Former SWAT leader David Hendrix (Dominic Purcell) and arrogant movie star Brody Walker (Cody Hackman) must cut their ride-along short when a police training facility is attacked by a team of mercenaries.

Production

Principal photography on the film began July 7, 2014 in Toronto, Ontario and lasted for five weeks.[1][4] Cuba Gooding, Jr. was previously set to play the lead role, but he was replaced by Purcell.[1][5] The majority of filming took place in an abandoned meat packing plant, which the producers turned into a studio for the duration of the shoot.

All of the effects, including gun shots and blood, were done practically with the exception of a few digital enhancements. The film set a record for the most bullets fired on screen in a Canadian film.

Release

The film had its world premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin on September 26, 2015, and had its Canadian premiere at Toronto After Dark on October 20.
